Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

I love making marshmallows from scratch, but sometimes I don't have gelatin, that is when I discovered making your own fluff which is also so amazing and made from egg whites so at least we get some protein with our sugar. You can use this as a spread inside sandwich cookies, you can make rice krispie treats or use an ice cream sundae topping.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 20 min


1 1/2 quarts


  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 5 1/2 ounces granulated sugar, divided (3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
  • 9 ounces light corn syrup (3/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Bring egg whites to room temp.  Place in the bowl of stand mixer.  Beat, increasing speed to medium-high and sprinkle in cream of tartar.  Continue to beat until the eggs start to get light, airy, and frothy.  Keep mixer running and slowly pour in 2 ounces of the sugar.  Continue to beat until firm, but not stiff peaks form.

2. In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar and corn syrup over medium heat.  Use a thermometer to cook the sugar until mixture gets to 240°F, maintaining a consistent boil. Once at 240°F, remove from the heat immediately.

3. Start the mixer on second speed and slowly pour the syrup in as it mixes until all of the syrup has been added. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl if needed, and then increase speed to medium-high and beat for another 5 minutes. The mixture should have expanded and you should now have a white creme that’s able to hold some shape. Add the vanilla, wipe down the bowl and beater, and beat for about 1 more minute, until the mixture is even in color again and has reached the desired consistency of marshmallow creme.

4. Store fluff in an airtight container in the refrigerator
